Example text

These incentives exist because there is not a countervailing force to encourage decisionmaking that would provide benefits to the wider area. Other regions, such as consolidated Indianapolis, have benefited from adopting a regional decisionmaking perspective that promotes common goals for economic development and planning. However, the link between regional governance and economic growth is not universal, and associated gains of regionalism are not automatic. Allegheny County’s existing fragmented government structure provides significant challenges for leaders when considering options for improving local governance.

There are many reasons why municipalities in Allegheny County might participate. These municipalities are increasingly interdependent, as people commute across municipal borders to work, creating interregional economic flows. Desirable housing, a strong urban core, an effective transportation system, and open spaces are all important attributes of economically growing regions, and these attributes can be fostered only through cooperation among municipalities. The business environment faced by private-sector decisionmakers is shaped by the aggregate policies of municipalities across the county, and that environment can be improved only through cooperation.
